Rockefeller Institute of Government seeks input on Foundation Aid funding

A study is being done by the Rockefeller Institute of Government to assess the State’s Foundation Aid education funding formula and discuss potential changes to how the formula works.

As part of the Foundation Aid Study, the Rockefeller Institute wants to hear from education stakeholders across New York state, including students, their parents and families, teachers, school staff and administrators.

Feedback and input on the Foundation Aid formula can be provided in two ways:

  • Submit written comments on the Rockefeller Institute website.
  • Register to speak at one of five public hearings happening this July and August in New York City, Buffalo, Farmingdale, Laurens and Guilderland.
